  …This is telling me that Marquette is now known as a TOP Big East school in the country. They used to play on the Big East network for a lot of these games last year but now there will be a lot on ESPNU and a few big matchups on ESPN primetime. To be honest, this is something I don’t think anyone saw coming a few years ago when Buzz Williams was hired. I think this schedule improves the recognition of Marquette’s program and their success the past few years in the Big East and NCAA tournaments. In the end, by having this deal, the program takes a BIG step forward. But if they don’t live up to their hype when the lights are flashing, they might have to say bye-bye to the national spotlight in the upcoming years…
